Hemingray Advertising

Hemingray Advertising

This section is dedicated to all the amazing and beautiful ads Hemingray had over the years. They truly are works of art! I am trying to preserve them for all to enjoy. If you have an ad that I don’t please contact me. I think it is important to preserve these and make them freely available for viewing. Some of the ads were in multiple catalogs or years. If the ad was 100% the same I did not add it to the list and used the best quality ad. Some of the ads may look the same, but look closely! They made small changes over time.
